I really wish people would stop being so cocky and take this crap seriously. If she does run, then there's a chance no matter how remotely they might figure out a way to rig it so she wins.
That should terrify the hell out of everyone. It certainly does me.

Seems like the odds of Hillary Clinton entering the 2020 presidential race are increasing...at least on PredictIt, a New Zealand-based prediction market, where users can make or lose money based on US political events.
When you consider Sander's recent health scare, Biden's Ukraine scandal and now Warren's "pregnancy lie," maybe the political gamblers are on to something.
I know someone who thinks this would be a great idea:

For those that are twitter deprived - here's her quote:
So Elizabeth Warren was asked about Mollie Tibbetts being murdered by an illegal...
Her reply was:
“I know this is hard for her family, but they have to remember that we need to focus on real problems like illegal immigrants not being able to see their kids”
Let that sink in.
She's not only mindless - she's completely out of touch with how the average person would feel about an asinine comment like that.
I'm glad this is coming out early in the game. If I was her opponent, I would save this and publish it every time she attacked me.

It wasn't in jest. I'm honestly terrified.

The thing you all have to remember is, Hillary doesn't plan on winning by the rules. They know they can't. They need to make up stuff about Trump and also push the electoral college unfair stories.
so right in the dems own words 3rd parties running must only be running to sabotage the dems?
But under a rule that went into effect this month, the threshold for third parties to get on the ballot in Texas was lowered in a way that watchdog groups, nonpartisan experts and progressive activists all say is designed to siphon votes from Democratic candidates and boost the prospects of the GOP in contests where the margin of victory in 2020 is expected to be razor-thin. “This is part of a very clear strategy by the Texas GOP to keep the demographic changes we’re seeing in Texas from being reflected at the ballot box,” said Anthony Gutierrez, the executive director of the Texas branch of the government watchdog group Common Cause. “This is one of the ways they could use a third-party candidacy to knock off a percentage point or two from a Democrat, allowing Republicans to retain power for a bit longer than maybe they otherwise would have.”

If she did run, it would be because the money people behind Trump were paying her to do it.
Sure would be nice if the U.S. had a strong, well-funded third party that wasn't dominated by single-issue crackpots.
